Logan, Utah (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The University of Hawaii Rainbow Wahine softball team swept a double header from Utah State Wednesday.

Hawaii won the first game 12 to 4 and took the second 18 to 8.

The Wahine hit four home runs in game #1, and five more home runs in game #2.  The nine home runs Wednesday pushed Hawaii's season total to 89.

The 89 home runs is a new school record.  The old school record was 84 set in 2007.  Hawaii needed 63 games to hit 84 homers in 2007.  It has played just 41 games this year and has 12 more regular season games left on the schedule.

Freshman center fielder Kelly Majum hit one of Hawaii's nine home runs Wednesday giving her a tie with Kate Robinson for the most home runs hit by a U.H. player in a single season (21).

The Wahine open a three game series at Boise State Friday.
